It sounds like Ma$e is ready to show people that he can get lyrically on the mic. After setting the internet ablaze with “The Oracle” a few weeks ago, Murda Ma$e returns dropping more lyrical fire over the classic “UFO” breakbeat by ESG.
On "Rap Rushmore," which features old ad-libs from Puff Daddy (aka Diddy) and DJ Khaled, Ma$e spits boastful rhymes about his flow, his style and legacy in the rap game.
"I'm Rap Rushmore, feel like I should bust more / They lust more, I bust more / Gimme brain plus jaw," he raps, adding, "I'm the only pretty n—- from the city, who Diddy ever had love for / Give a n—- mud for."
Ma$e gave no reason why he decided to drop another lyrical banger. Although one could point to the The Breakfast Club interview where co-host Charlamagne tha God questioned Ma$e's lyricism during his discussion with Jadakiss and Fabolous. Both 'Kiss and Fabo ranked Ma$e as a Top 5 MC on Bad Boy Records, while Charlamagne completely disagreed.
Meanwhile, on Twitter, folks are debating on whether or not Ma$e could be considered a "lyrical" MC.
Rapper Chevy Woods tweeted, "I don’t wanna hear mase rap no more … just my opinion."
Another fan wrote, "Ma$e must be giving us #NowWeEven in 2018… a flammable Cam diss record two weeks ago & now he’s just running laps on this #RapRushmore record with Puff & Khaled on adlibs.."
